and one is an incumbent campaign. no one has asked for my advice, but you see romney coming toward the debates and one of the challenges -- and i will talk about both campaigns, i think one of the challenges the romney campaign will have is that he is not connecting. he does not connect. and what's wrong with mitt romney? he seems like a nice enough guy to me. he was my governor for a while and i thought he was pretty competent in massachusetts. one of the things he has not done in terms of connecting was it's not dislike he's not connecting with people, but the thing that's really going on is he has not been able to say why his time at bain capital would make him ready for president. that's a connection that i think people are not seeing. he can get warm and talk about roses on his mother's bedside table, like at the convention, which was moving. but until we start connecting in that way, i think he will continue to struggle. obama campaign going into the debate does not have the burden and probably should talk about what the next four years will be like. i expect that will happen

guests today. we both voted for obama, and if you are going to think this is a funny, but my decision came with the last debate, and the reason was the minutes that mitt romney said that he was not going to cut the 1%-ers, i read all the people, and there is one thing that i have taught my children, my grandchildren, is do not lie. that was a big lie. jerry, when we got together 12 years, he was a republican, i was an independent. each time we vote, we say, we might as well not vote because you are going to cancel my vote out. this is the first time we did not cancel each other's phone app. he came close to not being able to but because he gave up his license a year ago, and he needed to go down and get a florida i.d., and then all the sun, you got a passport. so he was able to vote. i listened to them all. there were some things i liked on both sides, but i decided not to change horses in the middle of the stream. host: the early voting quest was there a line? caller: i floated through the mail. my daughter is here in florida. she just came in on my 80th birthday. she met a man here.
